Filling in the Blanks Holiday Backpack Program provides each child in our program with a new backpack.
Organize a Backpack Drive
The Holiday Backpack program provides children in our weekend meal program with a new full size backpack during the holiday season. Having a backpack is essential for transporting food home for the weekends. Every year during the holidays we fill these new backpacks with pancake mix and syrup, a new book, a new game, dental kits and many other needed items. We organize and collect new items for the backpacks all year round.
You can give your time! We are looking for volunteers to join the Holiday Backpack committee to organize backpacks and essential items drives. If you are interested in joining this committee please Contact us.
Is your company interested in being a corporate partner? We have many ways your company can get involved. Contact us.
The sturdy backpacks will not only provide a gift to the child but are a valuable means of transportation for their critical food packages.
